No software test left behind – standardized, automated XIL testing
With increasing vehicle complexity through ADAS, alternate drivetrains and consolidation of ECUs into domain controllers, software quality is essential not only for the user experience but also for the overall safety of the vehicle. XIL (anything-in-the-loop) tests, DevOps, virtualization, debugging, HMI-testing, efficient automation and standardized testing all play an integral role in making the next generation of vehicles a success. In environments that use a diverse range of specialized tools and manufactures, standardized automation has become increasingly difficult. We will present our solution to automate tool-independent software testing, facilitate DevOps, optimize resources and enhance distributed teams' collaboration on one platform.
